Versevo 25th anniversary

Versevo Inc. celebrates 25 years of innovation


Versevo Inc. is celebrating 25 years of innovation and growth in 2019. The company recently held an Employee Awards Night at The Rotunda in Waukesha, WI to mark this milestone anniversary and honor the contributions of its employees to its growth and success.

Today, Versevo employs over 50 team members and provides tooling, casting and machining for world-class OEM’s like Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), Caterpillar, John Deere, Mercury Marine and Tesla.

“We’re proud of our commitment to innovation, which has kept us at the forefront of the casting industry,” explains founder and CEO Terry Moon.

The keys to Versevo’s success during the last 25 years include:

  • Using powerful software modeling tools to help it optimize the manufacturability of customer parts and assemblies,
  • Providing its customers with net shape solutions – castings that are value engineered to be strong and functional while using the absolute minimal material, and
  • A proprietary six-step process that enables it to deliver “first shot success” - on time products and services that meet or exceed its customers’ expectations.

Even though Versevo is now a quarter-century old, Moon maintains a high level of entrepreneurial zeal. He’s always on the lookout for opportunities to grow the business while creating efficiencies and solving problems for its customers. “To me, this isn’t a job. Every day is an adventure for me,” he explains.
